"Highly recommended for listeners of all ages who have an interest in STEAM - the podcast is also perfect for science and STEM teachers looking for ideas to inspire their students. The engineers, scientists, and other experts are engaging and passionate about their work. Jennifer and Jed are equally excited about getting kids to read, ask questions, and look for answers. The support materials on the website extend the learning experience whether used at home or in the classroom. Be sure to tune in for the next episode, or get caught up on those you have missed."
